Wittgenstein ethics/aesthetics immanuel kant
Project description

The aim of this project is to develop an alternative approach to the analytical interpretation of the relationship between ethics and aesthetics. It does so by articulating the significant function of the experiencing subject for the dynamical conjunction of ethics and aesthetics as one. It investigates how the combination of Immanuel Kant's and Ludwig Wittgenstein's perspectives can be made philosophically relevant on this matter.
